Uttoxeter Canal - July work party

Only a very short note from me this month, to remind you that this month's work party is in a couple of days time. In a change from recent months, we are moving back to Crumpwood where we will be pulling Himalayan Balsam as well as cutting back vegetation regrowth at Bridge 70, Carrington's Lock and Crumpwood Weir. It would be great to have a really good turnout for this event, so please share the word to anyone you think might be interested.

No parking is available at site so please meet at 9.30am at Denstone Village Hall, College Rd, Denstone, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire ST14 5HR for a lift, or meet on site at Bridge 70 at 10am having made your own way on foot. The site is a little over a mile walk down the old railway track from either Denstone or Alton. When you see the newly laid section of towpath, walk down this to the bridge.

This work party is jointly led by the Inland Waterways Association North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch and Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust.

Next month

It would be useful to know in advance if you are planning to attend our August work party, which would again be at Bridge 70, doing similar tasks to this month. In previous years attendance in August has been limited by holidays so I would like to decide well in advance whether or not we are going to skip a session.
